Cairo- U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has announced on Wednesday that attacks on hospitals in Aleppo are war crimes, commenting on targeting the two biggest hospitals in the east of the city which is seized by the opposition.

The situation in Aleppo is worse than a slaughterhouse, Ban Ki-moon has said.

The two biggest hospitals in an area that is under the control of the opposition were targeted, therefore they stopped operating, according to a non-governmental medical organization that supervises these two hospitals.

An official in the Syrian Opposition told Reuters that some foreign countries provided the opposition forces with Grad rockets to combat a strong attack supported by Russia on Aleppo.

Other Syrian Opposition officials said that the regime forces clashed with the opposition fighters in several battlefronts. On the other hand, the regime forces and their allies are leading an attack supported by Russia to control the city.

“Pro-regime forces are mobilizing for more land attacks on certain areas in Aleppo”, said other opposition forces sources.
